LXer: Make Firefox fly: building from a minefield of source

Published at LXer:

The new, record breaking, Firefox 3 web browser is the fastest version of Firefox yet.

You can eke out a better disk and memory footprint and higher speeds by building it yourself from the original source code. I'll show you how, with genuine metrics to prove it.
